Hedya ochroleucana
Buff-tipped Marble

(Frölich, 1828)1084 / 49.158
Norfolk status
The sandy-ochreous cream colouration and a lack of any greyish tones in the distal (outer part) part of the forewing is diagnostic and should rule other similar species.

A fairly common species in gardens, woodlands and hedgerows in southern England and Wales, becoming scarcer further north.

Note: In photographing this species, depending on the lighting and the camera settings, the ochreous tones can easily be washed out leading to confusion.

Recorded in 48 (65%) of 74 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1874.
Last Recorded in 2021.
